what else should i do to improve roster

Postby rmmaye2 » Thu Apr 26, 2012 12:55 pm

I made 4 trades this week on players who started slow. The guys i play with are quick to write off players so i jumped on it. This is the roster at the moment:

Batters: Mccann, Votto, Fielder, Tulo, andrus, uggla, bonifacio, headley, cruz, kendrick, choo, jennings, lehair

Pitchers: Lincecum, Hamels, Haren, Wainwright, JoshJohnson, Morrow, Chapman, Marshall, Thornton, Marmol, Aceves, Broxton

I feel like I have an unbeatable roster if they all play to their 3yr averages.

How can i improve if saves arent important to me

10 team H2H espn standard settings with daily roster settings (6 keepers)

I think you're in great shape indeed. To improve, I would try to package a couple of players for one sure thing. For instance, Cruz/Choo for a better bat, or Johnson/closer for a safer arm.

Agree that you're in great shape. I'd look to move Cruz with his injury history but I'd keep Choo. Perhaps packaging him with Headley while he's still very hot or maybe pairing him with a pitcher (waiver wire pitching is fine in a 10 teamer) to get a more reliable big bat.

Also, even though saves aren't important, keep your eyes on the WW for free saves. I don't pay much attention to saves in the draft in my 10 teamer and always wind up getting plenty for free as the season goes on.

Thanks for the feedback on mine.
